Health Benefits of Circumcision:

Scientifically, it has been proved that circumcision plays a significant role in reducing the risks of a number of infections, diseases, and complications including:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS
  • Cervical cancer in female partners
  • Penile cancer
  • Balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans and foreskin)
  • Phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin) and paraphimosis (the inability to return the foreskin to its original position)

Though a lot of people do not agree to this procedure, circumcision proves to be an important health factor in males. Many health professionals also advise the society to avoid circumcision, but most of the complications that are linked to this procedure arise due to mishandling by the operator or by the ignorance and lack of awareness in parents regarding the issue of taking proper care in handling a circumcised child.
